My girlfriend and I stayed for 3 nights last week and had an enjoyable stay. Flights to and from L/pool on Easyjet were excellent although parts of Speke and Schoenfeld Airport are in need of refurbishment. The Adina hotel is not! It's immaculate, modern and welcoming. The only thing it's missing is a jacuzzi in the 'spa' and a bath in our room , both would have helped rest our weary legs! The bar was cosy and reasonably priced
The hotel is in a safe quiet location but within easy reach of most major sites. My favourites were the Jewish Museum ( need 3-4 hrs to do it justice), Gendarmenmarkt (Beautuiful square) , Hackesche Hoffe (the 8 courtyards are secreted way but are stunning) and the Reichststag. I'd not had confirmation back that we'd been given a tour slot for the visit to the parliament building (book it a week before you go) so we turned up 'blind', It was a great feeling to see our names on the list and be guided through the slick security, be handed free audio guides and entry to the glass dome (Like charlie and the choc factory but without the chocolate!). The dome is stunning and offers great views of the city
Brandenburg Gate, Checkpoint Charlie, Topog of Terrors and the Holocaust museum are all must sees but it's easy to overdo the sightseeing and not take enough time out to relax and peoplewatch.
The sony centre and Potsdamer Platz are worth a visit. It was extremely cold when were there so we took 'shelter' in the Ritz Carlton which is worth a visit if you want to see opulence! As is a vist to K De Werte dept store near Kurfurstendamm where the food hall and winter gardens on floors 6 and 7 are worth a vist if you are a foodie!
Couple of restaurants worth a mention are Vapino (Italian) and Auigustine (German resturant off Frederichstrasse, near Gendarmenmarkt
